Mimaropa police conduct mangrove planting activity in Naujan

A total of 1,200 mangrove propagules were planted during a planting activity in Brgy. San Antonio, Naujan, Oriental Mindoro on Friday, May 5.

Personnel from the Police Regional Office (PRO) Mimaropa, in collaboration with Barangay Officials of San Antonio, Naujan, advocacy support groups, and partner agencies, conducted a mangrove planting activity.

Led by Police Brigadier General Joel B. Doria, the Regional Director of PRO Mimaropa, the event was spearheaded by the personnel of Regional Community Affairs and Development Division and the Naujan Municipal Police Station, among others.

The mangrove planting activity highlights the police’s commitment to environmental conservation and community service. It also supports the police’s goal of ensuring that the community is safe and secure.

Mangroves play an essential role in protecting shorelines from erosion, storm surge, and other natural disasters. They also provide a habitat for various marine species, and their roots help filter pollutants and trap sediments, contributing to cleaner waters.
